In the run-up to Frankfurt, we were delighted to see such a brilliant piece, detailing our history as an agency, and our recent successes.
- The Art of Death by David Fennell - DI Grace Archer hunts for an underground artist and serial killer who uses social media to lure his victims to their deaths, before displaying their corpses as art in public places.
- The Planthunter by Thomas Mogford - a sweeping love story and white-knuckle adventure ride, set in 1867 bringing to life a period in history when real-life Indiana Jones characters risked their lives to find the exotic plants that fill our gardens today.
- A Fatal Endeavour by Tom Hindle - a golden age crime novel set in the 1920s on board the Endeavour, a cruise liner sailing to New York, where a body is found and a mystery unfolds surrounding a stolen painting and a secretive detective.
- The Dressmaker of Paris by Georgia Kaufmann - the story of a poor country girl from a village high in the mountains of Italy, of Nazi occupation and fleeing in the night, of hope and heartbreak in Switzerland, glamour and devastation in Rio de Janeiro, success and self-discovery in New York.
- The Diaries of Alan Rickman by Alan Rickman - kept for 25 years, and illustrated with his own highly accomplished drawings, Rickman's diaries tell the story of an extraordinary career, and of an extraordinary life. Funny, insightful, gloriously indiscreet and with a cast to die for.
